best way to upgrade the existing IDE disks to a new 1 TB Sata disk.
Hello. I want of you some advice about to change my two 80 GB IDE hard disks with dual boot (Ubuntu 13.10 and windows 7) to a 1 TB SATA hard disk with single boot with Ubuntu (Windows will be running as a virtual machine). So I am not sure the way to do a backup of my sd5 disk (where is the \ directory) and restore it when I'll have mounted my new 1 TB Sata disk. What tool to do the backup could I use? Should I use tar to backup? there will be problems as grub is working as a dual boot and my idea is have the new pc just booting with Ubuntu? There wiil be problems for changing IDE to Sata? And what will happen with the type of part. of the disk: now is MBR and with the Sata I want to use GPT?
PD: Is very important to me keep the present Ubuntu configuration.
